- Is there a support group in the us for people with insulinomas? (1 answer)
SUPPORT GROUP IN UNITED STATES!!!
Hi, the only support group that I've been able to find for people with insulinomas is located in the UK... just wondering if there is one in the US. I had pancreatic surgery to remove my first insulinoma in 2012, we're thinking there's another because I'm still having problems with hypoglycemia... if anyone know anything, PLEASE CONTACT ME!!! :)
I know there can't just be a support group here for FERRETS!!! people are kind of important... I hate this song, but "Don't worry, BE HAPPY" is okay, I guess... I'm trying to force it upon myself. Things will get BETTER!!!
- Seizure after an epipen injection (1 answer)
I am allergic to EVERYTHING, so I usually pre-game with benadryl and wait out the uncomfortable side effects, but this time my tongue started swelling up and I was having trouble breathing so I went to an ER. About 5-7 minutes after they injected me in the thigh with an epipen, I was in mid sentence when I started having strange sensations and tremors all over my body. The injection spot, which is incredibly sore and feels like they hit my femur) suddenly became very warm and I could feel it spreading out quickly. I could hear people but I couldn't speak, everything clamped up, I couldn't breathe and I felt very confused and forgot what I was about to say to the nurse. The doctor caught the tail end of it and claimed I was having a panic attack! I heard both the nurses say that they thought it was a seizure. This happened to me once more a few yrs ago with an allergic reaction, but it was from the nurse pushing in the benadryl too quickly, which made my hands curl up like T-Rex and my eyes rolled back into my head. Is there such a thing as being allergic to epinephrine or has anyone ever experienced a seizure/stroke like reaction after being administered Epipen or Benadryl ?
- Would the combination of the following drugs in 1 24hr period cause death ? (2 answers)
My husband was sent to hospital for double pneumonia, er determined afrib heart instead of pneumonia, gave a total of 18 drugs and 11 iv bags in 24 hours, he had an input of liquids 9350 ml and output was 350, with 0 in the last 5 hours. he gained 20 lbs in this 1 day . He did not even meet their requirement for admittance according to records but was admitted because an outside doctor sent him. His records , 196 pages, are in 3 different time zones, deleted and discontinued orders are followed anyway, just one big mess ending with a group of clowns trying to revive him with a set of pediatric paddles. Hell of a way to die.
